it was amazing

I have to preface this review by saying that I am a friend and neighbor of the author and I own a proof of the book. If that turns you off, so be it.
Never After is a great hodge podge of fairy tales with believable characters. Often in fairy tales the characters are so sublimely good or inherrently evil that you don't get a good picture of who they are and what their motivations could be. Rebecca does a good job of filling in pieces of the characters while at the same time understanding how ridiculous many of the situations in the tales can be. I have re-read the book several times and enojy it each time.

If you are looking for a spoof of fairy tales with a similar feel to Terry Prachitt, this could be a great book for you. Originally this was planned to be the first in a series and I hope we will get to see the other books eventually.
